Shoppers at Nisa in Gidea Park at the weekend may have been surprised to find themselves face-to-face with a local X-Factor star.

Amy Mottram was the main attraction at a fun day hosted by the Main Road off-licence in aid of Richard House children’s hospice – its official charity partner.

Half the shop’s profits on the day will be donated to the Beckton hospice, on top of which it will continue to give a few pennies to the charity every time someone buys an own-brand product indefinitely.

As well as popping along to meet Amy, youngsters enjoyed facepainting while adults helped the shop raise cash for the charity.
